Teaching and assessments

The Sports History and Culture MA allows you to study at your own pace. Study materials for your coursework are accessed via Blackboard. For each module there is a weekly lecture plus on-line reading, in addition to the resources available via the DMU Library. There are module leaders for each module and they will provide input regarding your coursework. Module leaders will be available each week by email, phone or Skype. Alongside set assignments, you are encouraged to suggest your own proposals in preparation for writing your dissertation.

There are two types of assessments: a Critical Analysis Assignment and an Essay. The length of the essay – either 5,000 or 7,500 words – will depend on whether you choose to write a Critical Analysis Assignment for that particular module. Critical Analysis Assignments are 2,500 words in length. Deadlines will be set for each assessment.

Graduate careers

Many of our students have used their studies to develop careers in sports writing, sport development, management, the media and teaching. Others have gone on to undertake PhD research and pursue academic careers. A number have used their studies to publish work. A number of our students have undertaken a six month paid internship with the history management team at the Adidas headquarters in Germany.
